Stream XBOX Game Pass titles to Nvidia Shield

06/07/2022

Exploring more of the options with Nvidia Shield, I’ve found the options to stream are limited, and the real benefit is from streaming games from my Nvidia equipped gaming rig.

Now none of the installed XBOX Play games were discovered by GeForce Experience… this was resolved by creating shortcuts to the games on my desktop, then moving these into their own folder, where they could then be added to GeForce… awesome!

Next issue is that not all of the games that I want to play are on this list: Nvidia Games Library, so they couldn’t be streamed to the Shield.

Moonlight

Moonlight allows you to play your PC games on almost any device, whether you’re in another room or miles away from your gaming rig.

Moonlight (formerly Limelight) is an open source implementation of NVIDIA’s GameStream protocol. We implemented the protocol used by the NVIDIA Shield and wrote a set of 3rd party clients.

You can stream your collection of PC games from your GameStream-compatible PC to any supported device and play them remotely. Moonlight is perfect for gaming on the go without sacrificing the graphics and game selection available on PC.

So now I have the capabilities to stream games from my PC to the Shield & 55″ 4K TV in the rumpus, happy days… now I may just need a hub to connect over LAN rather than WiFi
